The Mission District is among the most fascinating neighborhoods in San Francisco. It's currently undergoing demographic shifts and societal changes, but also boasts amazing food, art, nightlife, diversity, and the magical atmosphere of Dolores Park. It made me fall in love with the city and I hope you, too, will experience the neighborhood's charm.
Get the local scoop on Mexican food, shopping at thrift stores, what fruit markets have to offer and where to find a good book. Hear the story of the mural art miracle of Clarion Alley and kick off your shoes to end the tour at the idyllic Dolores Park.
